A Message from the Executive Director: May 2021

Earlier this month a new legislative bill was introduced which would be a big benefit to transportation in Colorado!

Senate Bill 21-260 will provide $5.268 billion in transportation funding to fix roads and bridges, improve transit options, meet the state’s climate goals and future proof the state’s transportation system. Commuting Solutions took a position of support for this transformative bill.

The transportation funding bill will save Coloradans money and time spent on the roads, it will create a transportation system that supports the economy and it will establish a sustainable funding source for the transportation system.

Another bill that was recently introduced is Senate Bill 21-238, if approved, would create a Front Range Passenger Rail District. Commuting Solutions voiced approval for this bill, which would create a district for planning, designing, developing, financing, constructing, operating and maintaining a passenger rail system, specify the territory, governing structure, powers and duties of the district.

I want to thank Colorado legislatures for working hard to create such great bills that will bring so many positives to transportation. We look forward to the partnerships across a local, regional and state level.

Cheers,

Audrey DeBarros, Commuting Solution Executive Director
